This band is the result of years of collaboration in a range of settings. Westward The Light a vessel for the members of the group to bring together an expansive knowledge of Scottish Folk style, ethos and culture, isolating and expanding on significant themes to create a new expression of an age-old sound
On fiddle, viola, vocals, piano, and guitar, the quartet creates a sound reflective of upbringings immersed in the nature and landscapes of Scotland. Elements of melodies are highlighted and explored by a varied instrumentation, audiences taken on an aural journey of Scottish sentiment, weather, culture and modernity.
